In order to demonstrate the full compliance with state-mandated requirements to develop water management plans (WMPs) by both urban and agricultural water managers in the Sacramento Valley, and to highlight efforts to develop WMPs by those who voluntarily did so, the Northern California Water Association (NCWA) hired Davids Engineering to design and create a map to visually illustrate WMP compliance. WMPs are important for responsible stewardship of water resources on both a local and regional level. Through review of WMP compliance reports from the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and coordination with NCWA staff and water managers in the Sacramento Valley, WMP compliance was determined. Using Esri’s GIS software package, a map depicting the portions of the Sacramento Valley covered under these plans was developed. More information on this project, including the final product, can be found on the NCWA website here (https://norcalwater.org/2019/05/15/new-map-shows-comprehensive-sacramento-valley-water-resources-management-planning/).
